Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT" LIEUT. AMIDI MAKES WILlli APPEAL FOR mm COMFORIS "The most wonderful fighting nia- ot the splendid, work of the Field's v-hine the world has ever seen,' was Liteutv Arnoldl's description o� the Canadian fighting forces. Lieut, Arnoldl prefaced her talk on the Field's Coniitorts Commission last iiight wiUi glowing pVaise ot the Canadian forces overeeas. "Thongh Cau-fidiah papers are full of the deeds ot these lieroes, the half has not been told," said Uieul, Arnoldi. "and the British papers far exceed the Canadian in praise of -Ibe Canadians," It is acknowledged by experts that there is nof a peer to the Canndian corps among the fighting armies. They have shown  wonderful initiative, trench raids were invented by the Caiiiadians. tliey have been leaders in machine gunnery .and have excelled in the various departments in which they have been placed. Lieut. Arnoldi then went on to tell Comforts Comniission in which she has been actively engaged for over three years. The work is divided into various departments. In the unpacking department a record is kepi by the card index system of all the parcels received from Canada, and are divided into tliro�? classes ui those for general distribution, if) tltose which forwarded and which, if thoy as others, and how very welcome lo-bacVo is Willi the Canadian soldiers who do not like Knglish makes. How Comforts Are Handled In the packing room the supplies from France are handled, and the comforts are sent to the men as o.uick. ly as possible, A constant stream of comforts goes over to the men. to those in the front line, who receive three times as much as others, to the comnumication lines and to the base. The dreary monotony and discomforts of the trenches jnakes it very hard for the men and a" change from this monotony is iuTOluablo in keeping up their morale and spirits. Bales of all sorts arc constantly being sent filled with various articles such as socks, shirt*, towels, handkerchiefs, toothpaste, soap, brushes, helmets, candles, cookers, soup tablets, cocoa, chocolate, gum, cigarettes, tobacco.

This year the men are to be sent a daintiy wrapped lb. cake ot chocolate and the purchasing of these will be done in Canada. The Comniission would like to have a guarantee from various societies in order that a regular monthly order for these supplies may be left I with these firms. --II-|! Lieut. Arnoldi gave a splendid de-^3J15J: scription of the bai;Iefie!ds in France, ! and of the wonderful order that prevails there. She also told in glowing terms of the work of the women in England in almost every activity: ot the V. A. D.'s. ine W. A. A. C.'s. the Wrens, and the various societies including the Red Cross. "In addition , to England sending men to battle-\ fronts, Great Britain, has now undertaken to clothi- 2 /nillion .^nferican soldiers," said .Miss Arnoldi. "She has borne the brum of tlie war since the beginning and said nothing. We do not know what sacrifice means in Canada." The Field Comforts Commission also has charge of tfee personal parcels which are heVe sorted, packed and j sent to France. Those being sent to ; men in Knglaiul are necessarily de- ( layed as the address of tbe recipient ; must be first ascertained before the { parcel is forwarded. The constant \ I touch of ilip men with Uie locality j .j from whicli tht-y come'will fflean much ; 'i after !!;e war. , I Advice Re Overseas Parcels Lieut, .\rnoldi gave some very prac tical advice it-garding overseas parcels, which from her wide experience ! would prove uf viUue to those sending ' parcels. Thfy consisted mostly of "don'ts." Don't put ill taffy as in going over it melts with the heat. Don't put salted packages as tlie oii >oaks through and also I makes the parrel hot, ;' Don't put gum in without wrapping i it carefully as the odor permeates the parcel. " Don't put .^oap in Without' careful wrapping for the same reason. Don't put in i:ocoa without carefully wrapping as ilie lids come off. Don't put till! parcel in tin boxes ;' as they often lireak, the contents are I mashed up ami broken edges injure 1 other parcels Bought overseas box-i es .ire advised', and if the parcel is j sewn in cotton the address will not 1 be lost. j .\i the conclusion a heafty vote of I thanks v.-as luovml by Mrs. H.
